Officers break up party

CUNARD — Fayette County Sheriff’s deputies were forced to act as “party poopers” Sunday night, after an impromptu party in a field close to a residential area got too big and loud.

Just after midnight, deputies were called to a “large, unruly party” at a field near the Cunard area, Fayette Sheriff Steve Kessler reported.

When the police officers arrived they discovered a crowd of 300 or 400 people, a DJ set up with an elaborate sound system and a “substantial quantity” of alcohol flowing. Some in the crowd were juveniles, Kessler added.

While several party animals fled into the woods at the sight of the police, deputies worked to reunite underage party-goers with their parents and to cite several adults for various misdemeanors, including possession of controlled substances and alcohol-related charges.

Kessler said the party had attracted people from Lewisburg and Wyoming, Fayette, Kanawha and Raleigh counties and Virginia, Tennessee and Texas.

He warned that large parties are “subject to regulation” and should be held in areas open to the public which are designed for large events.
